It's amazing how the buildings in Dresden look nowadays as most of it was bombed to the ground in WWII. The Zwinger combines the building of the Gemaldegalerie with a garden and a wall to form a rectangular structure that cannot be missed. Don't forget to go up and walk along the top of the building as you will get... More

The Zwinger - which is a collection of several museums is well done. I can highly recommend both the Porcelain and Mathematics parts of the museum.

A gem of central European baroque architecture that helps justify Dresden's reputation as a major cultural centre, being beautifully restored after the massive damage inflicted at the end of World War Two.

The Zwinger is a large green space in the center of Dresden. It is a beautiful gathering spot with spectacular views of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

There was plenty to see in this Museum. Exhibitions were well laid out and the walk around the walls provided a good view of other parts of Dreseden

I didn't expect much of the place before I walked in. It is in the middle of renovation work and is half covered. But when I walked in, I just fell in love with the place. You could walk in it for hours and be astonished of the beauty of the garden,the statues and the hugh building. Best place in... More

Situated near the river Elbe, this is a place you have to visit. Very nice but simple garden. Beautiful fountains, old but nice palace around the garden. In the buildings, great exhibitions to see, porcelain, paintings, as well as old mathematic and physical instruments. The ambiance ot the old building is something you have to feel.

Yet another part of the amazing architecture in Dresden, and a beautiful tribute to all of the work that was spent rebuilding the city after WWII
